Amazing Photorealistic Portraits Created with a Single Piece of Thread


kumiyamashita1

Kumi Yamashita is a New York artist who uses mathematics and her expertise in visual calculations to create thread and nail portraits called Constellation.

The artist’s work astounds many with its meticulously executed construction and the fine details that are captured through her creative diligence. By using three basic items—a wooden block (painted white), nails, and a single piece of thread—Yamashita manages to present every minute intricacy within her subjects’ expressions.
